MANCHESTER, NH – For the sixth straight year, the Currier Museum of Art, New Hampshire’s premiere art museum, will receive funding from Lincoln Financial Foundation to help students in Manchester and Nashua visit. This year, the Foundation is contributing $11,000, giving underserved students in those cities access to our outstanding collection of European and American art and wide-ranging special exhibitions.

“We are ecstatic to have such consistent support for this program from Lincoln Financial Foundation,” said Paul Staller, director of development at the Currier. “This is a win-win for the community. Offering these opportunities to kids who can’t afford them allows communities to grow through profound experiences with art.”

Almost 4,300 regional schoolchildren visited the Currier during our recent blockbuster exhibition, M.C. Escher: Reality and Illusion, many of them beneficiaries of this program and Lincoln Financial Foundation’s support.


 

The Currier Museum of Art, located at 150 Ash Street, Manchester, N.H., is open every day except Tuesday. It is home to an internationally respected collection of European and American paintings, decorative arts, photographs and sculpture, including works by Picasso, Matisse, Monet and O’Keeffe.

Visitors of all ages will enjoy the engaging exhibitions, the dynamic programs ranging from art-making and lectures to music, a Museum Shop, and an airy, light-filled café. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the Museum. The Currier welcomes visitors with disabilities and special needs. We are wheelchair accessible and offer FM headsets for sound amplification at many public programs. For more information, visit www.currier.org or call 603.669.6144, x108.

The Currier Art Center, celebrating its 75th year of operations, offers studio classes, art camps, Master classes and intensive workshops for all ages. The Museum also owns the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Zimmerman House, complete with the original furnishings and the owners’ fine art collection.
